ORGANIC GARDENS

The Agri-CULTURE Programme

foods

FATC has managed, beyond its initially-visioned expectations to grow small-scale organic vegetable gardens across the communities of the Emakhazeni Municipal district in which the organisation is based, as well as establishing a system that feeds the Agri-CULTURE produce back into the 93 household sustaining Angel Project through regular door-to-door provision of tomatoes, cabbages, mixed lettuce, spinach, beans, green peppers, jalapeños, carrots, baby marrow and herbs. In its second year of existence and project-cause integration, and growing positive impact, FATCs contemplation of more sustainable models of being in relationship with the environment and its living matter is motivation for our interest to interrogate more closely and from varied perspectives, what our relationships to, and our narratives of the greater climate change conversation are.

Through Small-Scale Farming & Organic Vegetable Gardens on FATC Edhudlweni Art Centre Site, the Agri-CULTURE project has managed to regularly provide a variety of vegetables (including tomatoes, cabbages, mixed lettuce, spinach, beans, green peppers, jalapeños, carrots, baby marrow and herbs) to the network of 93 Angel Project households (est. 2020) since the first harvesting process of the pilot project.

The integration of the Angel Project was a key component of the Agri-CULTURE project design from conceptualisation; holding the goal of incorporating the creation and development of Small-Scale Agricultural farming sites – aimed at responding to the persistent food security crises/needs at a local community level – into (and thus furthering) the 2020 established food and hygiene sustenance and security packs providing “Angel Project”, relief endeavor.

Through the project’s training programme, FATC sought to establish small-scale organic farm structures in community sites using a replicable small-scale farming initiative. Doubling an initially envisioned 12 small-scale farming sites creation in home and community locations, the project has confirmed 24 sites, going above and beyond its goals and to carve out pathways for local citizens to circumvent some of their food security challenges and needs.
